A New House for Tarikwa

Tarikwas Temporary House

Tarikwas Temporary House

The impact of mossy foot disease is far wider than the health issue that presents such a visible need. Hundreds of women have been abandoned by their husbands as a result of the stigma associated with this disease, leaving them with no means to live and support themselves and their children.

Due to a generous donation from one of our partners, scores of homes have been built for those in need of housing. Mossy Foot Project partners with the local community and local churches in these projects. The community provides labor and supplies such as brick and mud, while Mossy Foot Project provides the more difficult to obtain roofing, nails, doors, and windows.
